3  I have included in the following slides some key sections from each of the codes you will primarily encounter on the test. I recommend reading each of the key sections noted.  The Denver Building Amendments can be difficult to navigate. I recommend reading through one time the entire Chapter 5 and reading through two times the entire Chapter 9.  The majority of the second part of your test will be answered in Chapter 9 of the Denver Building Amendments.

10  This slide show contains multiple timed questions. All questions can be answered using the International Fire Code, The National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code and the Denver Building Amendments.  If you put the slide show into slide show mode, the slides will transition automatically and allow you 3 minutes for each question. The answers will stay up for only 15 seconds. When you reach the end of the practice test there will be a slide that reads STOP.  You can then click on the slide and the questions will be repeated without the timer so that you can write down questions and answers and take notes.  During the timed section, do not worry about writing down the correct answer. Proceed through the timed section then review the questions and answer again without the timer.
